Ok. However I still don't see how I would go about setting it up. I thought I can
call only a single authentication module in freeradius. When one succeeds the
authentication section terminates.
Also the only support for oath in freeradius are the oath toolkit and google authenticator
PAM modules.

could you please point me in the right direction?
